A cleric from Narok county has called on Kenyans to live in harmony as the country braces of the August 9 general election.
His is one of many prayers for peace.
Bishop John Mpurkoi of Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG) Narok church also urged the politicians to preach peace to all the people whatever their background, race or tribes.
He made the remarks after installing new pastor Sammy Yenko at Enengetia PAG church on Sunday.
Yenko is replacing long-serving Rev Johnmark ole Keshe.
Mpurkoi said the country should not be subjected to the events of 2007 elections where many Kenyans were killed, maimed and hundreds of thousands of others displaced.
“Never should chaos or bloodshed be witnessed in an election like the one witnessed in 2007 after disputed presidential results. We need to maintain peace all the time,” Mpurkoi.
He said those running for election should be on the frontline calling for harmony and unity.
“Politics of tribalism have been overtaken by time and as leaders we need to focus on creating," he said.
“We don’t have another country, Kenya is our home and we should be build by unity not divisions,” Mpurkoi said.
He urged all the communities living together to avoid ethnic divisions that he said are against God's wishes.
“We need to preach a peace message to live like brothers and sisters and we make our country to stride ahead in development,” Mpurkoi said.
The bishop said the public has a duty to scrutinise every leader so to elect untainted leaders.
“We should ensure only those with merits in leadership are the only ones eligible for the positions and that will be a milestone,” he said.
